The National Intelligence Organization (MİT) will recruit the personnel who know Arabic, Persian, Armenian, Sorani and Hebrew. Sorani is a Kurdish dialect that is spoken in Kurdish areas of Iran and Iraq.
Candidates need to be citizens of Turkey and at least a graduate of college or an equivalent school. A person who is a graduate of an international school needs to possess an equivalence certificate provided by the Higher Education Board (YÖK) and the Ministry of Education.
Male candidates are required to have completed their military service or to be three months from discharge. However, if the male candidates have not started their military service yet, they need to defer their service until July 2013 at the earliest. Priority is given to the candidate who is available to serve in different parts of Turkey and the world. The candidates must be successful during the interview that is part of the entrance exams organized by the MİT Undersecretariat.
Applicants who satisfy the conditions will later need to pass a test of their foreign language in both a written and a spoken format. The candidates that earn scores of 70 and above in Arabic, Persian and Armenian in the Foreign Language Exam for State Personnel (KPDS) will be exempted from the foreign language test.
